Madonna is pinned down for some great interviews while in Italy, where my spies tell me the crowds have been the most enthusiastic. In the first, she speaks about the concept behind her MDNA Tour and why she isn't on Twitter.
And here, check out a 42:36 (!) streaming Deejay: Popcake special devoted to Madonna with fantastic footage from the tour (especially of the atmosphere for fans)
Madonna's Roman ass-flash is even more playful and even more contextually impossible to chalk up to "desperately trying to seem sexy" than the nip-flip was.
As of midnight last night, it was exactly six years since my first post. It's been a tough thing to keep up with a dayjob and outside activities, and just when I think I might walk away, a valuable connection or interesting opportunity or a kind word comes my way. Thank you all for reading me.
Of whom are you more jealous?

Madonna's being called a Communist and worse for stating the obvious—that Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is unfit.
Okay, Madonna haters (many of whom are liberals who nonetheless see the adamant leftist as some kind of a Fascist), go ahead and pile onto her for this latest scandal—I'd like to find ANYONE outside of his most right-wing supporters in the Italian government, who could argue that Berlusconi is not deserving of far worse condemnation.
Meanwhile, it's offensive to Italy to offend Berlusconi...yet didn't he just call his own homeland a "shit country?"
With yet another article claiming people at Venice were "rolling in the aisles" at Madonna'a W.E. (which isn't a comedy...), I thought I'd post this first-hand account from Stefano, a fan who was there. Sounds like my reaction: Not a great film but nowhere near worthy of all the bile...
